Caulfield Village developer to challenge Glen Eira Council conditions at VCAT

THE billion dollar Caulfield Village residential and retail project north of the Caulfield Racecourse is headed for VCAT.

Developer Beck Probuild has lodged an appeal against Glen Eira’s Council’s conditional approval for the first development plan.

BPG Caulfield Village director Sam Beck said: “All we are doing is appealing the clarity and consistency of some of the minor conditions of the approved Development Plan which includes engineering, design and parking.’’

“We don’t see them as significant items and we believe that we can resolve them with the Glen Eira City Council.’’

Councillors want the developer to provide 130 publicly available off-street car spaces across the site to compensate for existing on-street parks that will be lost to the project.

They also want 127 car spaces in the Smith St Precinct for use by Caulfield Tabaret/Glasshouse patrons at all times during operating hours.

Those spaces are required as part of the MRC’s permit for the tabaret and will be lost to the Caulfield Village development.

Councillors approved the first development plan by six votes to three.

The hearing is listed for September 29 and 30.
